I really did enjoy the book overall, however, as a stay-at-home mother of 8 kids (yes, we are Catholic,too) ages 6-months - 13 yr's old, many of the points lacked depth, I thought. I share many of her values, and I, too, have been married for 19 years to the same wonderful man, but I have much more on my mind at the end of the day other than tidying the house for "my man" and waiting anxiously at the door for his arrival. If I am waiting anxiously at the front door, it's to hand him the baby and the younger kids so I can go to the bathroom alone.

After years of infertility and then successfuly being blessed with our wonderful family, I'm truly not looking to compare my life with hers or any others, I'm looking to share in the good, frenzied, funny, difficult and realistic moments that any mother shares this day and age. I'd love to sit down with Kathryn and talk one on one with her---I'm sure she's faced the mundane struggles the rest of us have, and it would be nice to hear about it without quite as much frosting---that's all.

I was so disappointed with this book. I bought it wanting to love it. I figured I ought to be able to learn *something* from a mother of ten. But instead, I got a book that rehashes the Oprah Show and Dr. Phil. There's nothing new here at all. Sadly, the author didn't even really show us how she accomplishes the goals in her own life. There is no depth.
  • riki
This is a "nice" book. It tells tales of everyday mommy troubles and all, but it doesn't really provide some amazing insight or deep thought about our role as women in the world and as mothers... I found it to be easy-to-read and comforting to know other mothers feel as I do, but in essence, there wasn't anything in here that left me saying, "Wow! What a great idea!" - maybe I'm expecting too much, but her ideas about how to relax (take a long car ride, give yourself a pedicure and take a bubble bath!!!) are nothing more than obvious. Save your money.

There are some really great words of wisdom in this book and some great ideas for family life, especially with regard to marriage. It's clear that the keys to her success as a wife and mother are staying in great shape and having a good outlook on life. However, I think her overall approach to getting so much done and being involved in so much is only doable if you're not nursing your babies.
  • Gigafish
Loved the fact that you didn't have to read cover to cover and can just pick up and read anywhere you'd like. Recommended book to friends and sister who has three kids all under the age of six. She has found the book to be extremely helpful in balancing her busy life. Definately would recommend this book to anyone who needs help in balancing their life, especially SAHMs and Moms with more than one child.

I really wanted to like this book. I admire any woman who can have 10 kids and not go insane. However, I thought her book lacked substance and honesty. There is NO WAY she can do all the things she said she does.....maintain an organized & well-decorated house, play dates and sports activities for the kids, working out every day, date nights with hubby, manis and pedis, etc etc. It doesn't add up. She must have a maid, nanny or a heck of a lot of help coming from somewhere. I kept thinking her husband must make a lot of money to afford this lifestyle; which gives her choices not applicable to the "rest of us."

She does seem really nice, intelligent and thoughtful... and I bet I'd love having her as my neighbor or friend.... but I just can't help but be disappointed. My heart broke when she said she didn't breastfeed....and that's when she finally lost credibility for me. I think she's an example of the lie so many American women tell themselves - that you can "have it all." It's just not true ....something's got to give. I kept wondering how much attention her kids really get. I'm glad her life works so well for her but it sure isn't how I want to raise my family. I guess it all comes down to priorities and I just don't agree with some of hers. If you do agree with her, you'll probably love the book.

As a busy mom, I agree that dates out with my husband and daily 30 minute workouts are essential to well being, health, and happiness. What I question in her book are these things:

-having and keeping up with so many friendships, even ones who have run their course (like her friend who never calls her, take the hint Katherine!) When you have a husband and ten kids, just finding alone time with yourself, your husband, and special times out with each child should be enough, and maybe one or two close friends.

-using chores as a punishment instead of "time outs" because the kids began enjoying the time "in their rooms". First of all, time outs are meant to be right in front of you for like 3 minutes, on a chair facing the wall, not in their rooms watching T.V. and the like. Secondly, with mostly boys in her family, I think men have enough problem helping with chores in their lives, and using them as punishment, I think, is a really bad idea.

-for most women, lifting weights throughout an entire pregnancy would be impossible. Personally, I spend the first three much deathly ill, and the last three months with shortness of breath and fatigue. And lifting weights during breastfeeding can cause severe mastitis for many woman. (However, Katherine did not breastfeed any of her kids.)

Katherine says life was much harder in her twenties when she had only two kids than in her forties now with ten kids. That's because she is older, wiser, and has a very wealthy husband. It's not jealousy, it's reality: Nice things make life nicer, lots of money makes life easier. She doesn't mention nannies and housekeepers and manicure and pedicure payments, because those things aren't an issue when you're rich.

But to be fair, I'm glad I read the book and I was inspired by many other things, and still gave it three stars.
